About us

“ Jivdaya ”is the act of compassion for all living beings”.

Jivdaya is traditionally associated with Jainism and it is the very essence of its philosophy. Its main aim is to save animals from slaughter houses and provide nutrition, water and health care includes feeding and caring for the sick and elderly animals and birds.

In today’s world we witness so much cruelty and violence to people and animals. Thousands of animals areillegally and brutally slaughtered daily.They have no say in their well-being. It was this brutality and cruelty that prompted the youth of Vapi to take action in 1990.Hence these youth formed “Hinsha Nivaran Sangh”. They became the guardians of the law to save animals which were molested and inhumanly traffickedand abused and slaughterd mercylessly.

It prompted the need to create a shelter for the treatment and sustenance of these animals-“Jivdaya Kendra”. Both Shree Ajit Jain Seva Mandal and the youth of Hinsha Nivaran Sangh started their mission of building shelter.

The late Shree Chhotalal Bhaichandji Shah and Mrs.Induben Chhotalal Shah came forward and donated a large piece of land- free of cost known as, Shah Chhotalal Bhaichand Ratavala Jivdaya Kendra,panjarapolto be run by “The Shri Ajit Seva Trust”.

The complex is spread over 17 acres of lush green land and growing in stature and size every day.In this Jivadaya Kendra or sanctuary all kinds of wonderful arrangements are made for the animals to enjoy complete peace and comfort.Huge shelters have been built for buffalos, cows and goats. Large godownshave been built to store feed with plenty of drinking water available. There is even a rabbit house. It even houses birds. There are beautiful ponds for fish and ducks. The complex has therefore become the sanctuary for all types of abused animals giving ita humane and meaning and life.

Many other organisation working with the same goals send the livestock to our panjrapol.if there are reports of accidentsor injury to animals or even diseased livestock, an ambulance is used to transport animal to the jivdaya centre for further treatment. Here, they are provided with special medical care and accommodation. We have full accommodations for our staff on duty 24/7.

Why this organisation is unique

This institution does not pay a single rupee towards buying of animals from butchers or slaughterhouses. The idea being not promote this type of business activity. We use the law and enforcement officers through the court systems be it lower or supreme courts to protect the lives of all animals. With the aid of officers many illegal traders in animal slaughter business have been raided and apprehended.

This sanctuary/panjarapol houses many variety of animals be it household such as cows, buffaloes,dogs,donkeys,monkeys,cats,sheep and goats. There are,ducks,pigeons,sparrows, peacocks, gray mongoose and several types of fish, tortoises, and water snakes. They are all living in peace and harmony.

The play ground created brings children to run to the panjrapol.The free flow of oxygen midst the hustle & bustle of industry makes it a place to revind for many.

Due to the nature of the good work and volunteerism and unprecedented progressmade many animal lovers of all sects and religions give and offer their blessings by donating generously their time both materially and financially. We do receive occasional donation internationaly too.
